New Pipeline Construction : 30 year Liner

  • The Middle East is the fastest growing pipeline market.
  • The region will expand by 42% in construction length and 63% in expenditure in the next 5 years.
  • Why not install a Spiral HUG Pipeline Liner in all the new pipeline networks to extend their lifetime to 30 to 50 years for a reasonable extra cost?

  • The initial extra cost of installing a Spiraling HUG Pipeline Liner in New Pipelines is offset by the annual savings from pumping, maintenance and efficiency.
  • The Spiraling HUG Pipeline Liner has the lowest overall lifespan costs compared with other alternatives at a cost of 25% to 33% less.
  • In January 2010, UAE-based construction firm, Dodsal, won a contract for the replacement of a 100 km, 36 inch diameter pipeline linking Abu Dhabi, worth $US 8.5 million/km.
  • The Spiraling HUG Thermoplastic Liner would have cost 25% to 33% less: and still would have generated a very high profit margin.
